four years ago and two years ago in los angeles and used for the first surgery our anthem, which provided the total cost of various procedures that was the total cost that would include the facility, the position, the anesthesiologist, whatever you need. for a cataract. and what i learned is that there was a wide variation in the cost. i live in west los angeles, where it's not only important to be healthy, you have to look good as well. one of the striking things is that a free standing surgical structure in 90210, just around the corner for the gucci store, 3200. two largest facilities, the academic institution was about 6,000. the large community hospital was 11,000. for me, as a individual who paid a 20% coinsurance, the benefit was direct to me in the sense that the coinsurance on the 3500 saved me 2 to $3,000 out of the pocket as a result of that and it also saved anthem money in the sense they're paying the 3500 and not the expanded fee. so, i'm telling you this because my experience, relevant for me, doesn't make much of a dent in these two high priced institutions and di

is to say los angeles isn't a 19th century city. it's a mid-20th century city. it's a city that's strung out. it's not a city that's like chicago is from the park. where you have rings of avenues accessing it it. so people don't have ta clear identification with a single institution. people have identifications with multiple institutions. they don't have the benefit that they are being multigenerational with it. so it's going to sound terrible, but it maybe it's a bit more retail in los angeles. i don't mean exchange of money. it's much more about visits. it's not about integrating that institution yet into one's own narrative and life and family life. >> you get a sense of that by the exhibition where there's a lot of w

of the election and she goes to new york, atlanta, detroit, los angeles, san francisco. places where there are significant african-american populations and major labor unions because labor unions and then john kennedy had a very tempestous relationship because of bobby's relationship with the persecution of jimmy hoffa and so eleanor is designated to be the kennedy emissary to african-americans and labor. and so her campaign is instrumental there for the president's victory, although he won for many reasons but i think the one statistic that's very interesting is that as you all know he becomes president because he carries illinois by 247,000 votes. he wins 267,000 african-american votes in chicago. and eleanor spends three days of the last 16 days of the campaign working with the ncaap, going to african-american churches and holding rallies. so there was a let's say an iou that was, you know, desperately earned there. and when president kennedy appoints fewer women to presidential appointments than any president after fdr, eleanor begins there's no other word for it, to browbeat him

the attorney-client privilege to the identity of an undercover officer in a gang in los angeles to any number of reasons why governments legitimately keep secrets that are subject to oversight in a classified manner, either through the oversight of their executive branch or legislative branch or in some cases the judicial branch. thus, while i fully support the overarching sentiment that underlies much of the bill that is before you, that is, the idea that we can and should seek to increase transparency with respect to the nsa surveillance programs, i think that we have to do so in a calibrated way, one that takes into account what the end goal of transparency in this circumstance is. now, i would submit that the end goal here is greater oversight, greater audit, greater assurance that the nsa and other intelligence community activities are acting in conformance with the laws that set them out and not in ways that are in violation of those laws. to my mind the right answer to the questions you are asking is how will the transparency you're advocating advance that goal? with that in mind, my s

in the chinese military, that you won't trade los angeles for tai pei this is a central role of the kind of limited missile defenses that are practical. as to why -- i don't know how many reams of good will and paper have been spent on trying to convince the russians that we would like nothing better than to do things which really no kidding cross our hearts, hope to die, that unsurprisingly, maybe a few hundred american intercepter missiles will not defeat thousands of russian ones and they usually get variation on no or no followed by colorful adjectives but maybe they'll change. >> general cartright, to follow on curt's point about demonstrating the capacity and political will of the alliance to deal with challenges of today and tomorrow, you talked about the mobility, the mobility of allied forces. i have a sense that that ability may be demonstrated for expeditionary operations but i wonder if the alliance is probably configured today and positioned today to deal with fast breaking regional contingencies on the border, be it poland, be it turkey? am i underestimating nato's capacity

birmingham. the initial rallies of support in los angeles and new york in april 1963 spawned some 750 demonstrations in nearly 200 cities with the arrests of more than 15,000 protesters across the country. suddenly, a black rebellion was at hand. the kennedy administration was caught off guard. rather than the civil rights activists in birmingham, the president more concerned with actions of alabama's feisty governor who pledged to stand in the schoolhouse door to stop the federal courts from desegregating the state schools. kennedy feared another ole miss, and focused attentions on wallace rather than king. attorney generalobert kennedy compiled the alabama notebook, the documented state's corporate ceos to get them to pressure the governor to cool off. wallace wanted to heat things up, so he stole the scene away from birmingham, by staging an elaborate charade in tuscaloosa. june 11, 1963, he blocked the entrance of foster auditorium to prevent african-american students from entering the university of alabama. the governor choreographed an ela ela elaborate dance, when the nationali

legalized and taxed, would it -- >> could you state your name, please? >> sorry, michael jabra, i'm from los angeles. and if drugs were legalized and taxed, would it damage organized crime by taking away some of their revenue and allowing law enforcement to go after other crimes such as human smuggling and international property theft? >> well, certainly, it would change the pecuniary status situation there. there's been a mixed message sent for places where drugs have been legalized. in canada, there is medical marijuana that's permitted and the canadians say that organized crime is taking advantage of the fact that there is medical marijuana permitted and they are setting up grow facilities and things like that. in the netherlands, there's been a substantial loosening of drug issues there, but the interesting thing is, it has brought in a lot more illegal drugs in the netherlands since they've had certain legalized marijuana to the point that starting this year, the netherlands prohibits any foreigner from going into their pot shops. the czechs have legalized a significant amount of drugs

reported on, huh? let's go to marvin who is watching us from los angeles. you're on the air. >> caller: yes. thank you very much for the program. one thought, first. i was able to be at the texas delegation at the democratic convention where jfk and lbj had sort of a debate. it was very humorous. and jfk said, i think he's such a great senate majority leader, you should stay there. my question, number one, is did lady bird johnson want lbj to accept the vp nomination and, number two, would lbj have been as successful in all of his various jobs without the support of lady bird johnson? >> well, i think we can start with the second one first. everybody pretty much agrees it would have been a different lyndon johnson without lady bird. don't you think? >> absolutely. and i think he'd say that. she was an enormous part of his success and support. >> and then on the 1960s question, it seems fairly clear that initially she and a lot of other people did not want him to take the second spot on the ticket. they considered john kennedy a really junior member of the senate and he should wait his turn.

states was going after a revolutionary time. >> last call is from los angeles. >> he certainly deserves great praise for his work in the anti-smoking campaign. god bless him in that. i'm interested in his remark when he said a moment ago that lyndon johnson participated in an effort to cut taxes. as a commonwealth, the tax revenues kept pouring in and except for a small surtax later, the budget was balance the for the first time in a long time. kennedy did it, johnson did it, reagan did it and the same result ensued that tax revenues increased. president clinton comes along and increases tax is. and then they claim some credit for the prosperity today. thank you. >> well, i think the economy was a critical -- lyndon johnson spent more time on the economy than on any other subject including the war and even including civil rights. he saw the economic health of the country being critical for being able to get the same great society programs through and making this country a fair society. >> your book, "the triumph & tragedy of lyndon johnson," one of the numerous biographies of the presid
